Grunge gives us three insights about DJ Snake, the French-Algerian music mastermind born William Sami Étienne Grigahcine:
He has been DJ-ing since the age of fourteen.
The trademark sunglasses we a suggestion for him to cope with stage fright.
“Snake” was a nickname he gained when he could slither away from the police during “youthful indiscretions involving graffiti art.”
The Grammy-nominated producer and artist debuted on the international scene with singles “Bird Machine” and “Turn Down For What” in 2013.
Neither stage fright nor slithering away will be options when DJ Snake comes to Philadelphia for the 2022 HiJinx Fest.
As headliners, HiJinx has locked in DJ Snake, Australian DJ Flume, Belgian bass duo Ganja White Night and Canadian DJ REZZ. There are also a couple of collaborative, back-to-back sets including GRiZ b2b Zeds Dead and Gigantic NGHTMRE.
HiJinx takes place at the Pennsylvania Convention Center Dec. 29 & 30, 2022.
